Samsung officially confirms Galaxy Note 9 price and pre-order gifts in one market
Until today, that is, when we’re technically still more than 24 hours away from the “next big thing’s” official announcement. That didn’t stop Samsung from already listing the Galaxy Note 9 up for pre-order in Vietnam, thus revealing the handset’s recommended retail price and a special bundle accompanying it to market.
This is far from the company’s first gaffe leading up to tomorrow’s Unpacked event, and just like the previous ones, all evidence of the new faux pas is bound to vanish before long. As you can see in our screenshots, the Galaxy Note 9 is set to be priced at around 25 million Vietnamese Dong in a 128GB configuration, and VND 29,490,000 with 512 gigs of internal storage space.
That roughly converts to $980 and $1,180 right now, and although Vietnam and the US are clearly two very different markets, those numbers essentially line up with our educated guesses based on speculation for Korea and the UK.
Apart from an all-new S Pen, the Note 9 will apparently be bundled with a free fast charge wireless charging stand, USB C to HDMI adapter for DeX support, Clear View cover, and JBL Inspire 700 wireless sport headphones. That’s not as exciting and valuable as a complimentary pair of premium AKG N60NC wireless headphones with active noise cancellation, but pre-order gifts are likely to differ from region to region.
Besides, the JBL Inspire 700 are worth around $80 stateside, a fast charge wireless charging stand typically costs at least $30, and that Clear View accessory is likely to fetch another $30 or so, amounting to some pretty decent savings all in all.
